I had my water bag burst after 37 weeks on my first pregnancy, wondering whether it will happen on my second pregnancy also. I am still working wondering whether should go on leave. I am on week 36.

Every pregnancy is different and there is no telling whether or when your water bag will break. Personally, I think it's a good time to go on leave now to prepare for labour. Stress from work is definitely not helpful for a pregnant lady so close to full term. Give your a break and prepare to welcome the second little one to the family! Congrats in advance! :)

I stopped work at 37 weeks pregnant and delivered at 39+4. I had a colleague who stopped work at 39 weeks and delivered 3 days later. It's better to stop work earlier than later and be at a rested state before heading to the hospital. It helps especially if your job is one with high stress levels.
